Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to announce the publication of TAYLOR ON CRIMINAL APPEALS (Second Edition OUP)

The book was written by 14 members of the DSC criminal team, led by Paul Taylor, together with Professor David Ormerod, Steven Bird and Rajiv Persad.

It includes detailed chapters on conviction and sentencing appeals, case stated and judicial review, prosecution appeals, attorney general references, the Criminal Cases Review Commission, and public funding.

The book analyses the grounds of appeal and review, and extensively covers appeals against conviction (including the Court of Appeal's approach to hearsay, bad character, fresh evidence, and issues under the Human Rights Act 1998), as well as appeals against sentence (including IPP's, minimum terms and young offenders).

It contains precedents and legislative and procedural extracts.

There is a foreword by Sir John Thomas, President of the Queen's Bench Division
